Out of band authentication

Question: 
We have out of band authentication procedures already for payments. Won’t those work during a cyber-attack?
Answer: 
It depends. Some out of band procedures may still work, but others may fail you. You won’t know for sure until you’ve tested your procedures against different threats. And don’t forget, not all cyber-attacks target your business customers to commit fraud, such as an Account Takeover; some target your payments platforms directly. Out of band authentication won’t be beneficial here.
